TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — AudioEye, Inc. (OTCQB: AEYE) (“AudioEye” or the “Company”) the leader in cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) digital content accessibility solutions, today announced that its previously disclosed a 1-for-25 reverse stock split of its issued and outstanding common stock (the “Reverse Split”) is expected to become effective prior to the open of the market on August 8, 2018, and the Company’s common stock should begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the market opens on August 8, 2018. The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the OTCQB under the symbol “AEYE” and the new CUSIP number will be 050734 201. As a result of the Reverse Split, each twenty-five pre-split shares of common stock outstanding will automatically combine into one new share of common stock without any action on the part of the holders. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Reverse Split. Any fractional share resulting from such aggregation of common stock upon the Reverse Split shall be rounded up and converted to the nearest whole share of common stock.
As previously announced, the Company’s Board of Directors and a majority of the Company’s outstanding voting power approved the Reverse Split. On August 1, 2018, the Company filed the Certificate of Amendment to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to effect the Reverse Split and to set the number of authorized shares of common stock at 50,000,000.
The Reverse Split will allow the Company to pursue a listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market (“NASDAQ”), which, upon listing, would make its common stock more attractive to a broader range of institutional and other investors.
The Company is continuing to work diligently to pursue its application to have its common stock approved for trading on NASDAQ. Before any listing of the common stock on NASDAQ can occur, NASDAQ will need to approve the Company’s application for listing after the Reverse Split is completed. There can be no assurance that NASDAQ will approve the Company’s application.
Additional information about the Reverse Split can be found in the Company’s Schedule 14C filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 10, 2018, a copy of which is available at www.sec.gov.
